Day 6 Rolla Mo to Tulsa Ok


Hi everyone. We have just done 12 hours, give or take a few comfort breaks, and covered 320 miles of awesome roads. We've seen a lot of poverty, believe it or not, and great wealth all nestled around each other. The land is so green; even more so than Ireland! No sights to see today as had too far to ride, but Ive been asked to mention to Terry Custance's Doctor that the hands are holding up well, its the rest of his body that's giving up!


Passed some Civil War battle fields and rode through the area where The Outlaw Josie Whales dished out his blend of Missouri justice back in the 1800's. The sense of history is with me all the way and I think I speak for all when I say that we are all astounded by the hospitality shown to us. Last night Mike, Andre, Diesel and I went to a bar called the "Tata-Patch" a biker bar. They gave us free food and we chatted up the modern day version of a saloon Gal called Patsy, part Cherokee Indian, she was lovely. It was as if we had just stepped into the film set of Every Which Way But Loose!


This is Rosie here to everyone I know .

And if you have time, be sure to stop in Stroud at the Rock Cafe. You'll get great food and a friendly welcome.
